Plant cell culture techniques are being increasingly used in basic research and for plant exploitation in industry (genetic engineering, micropropagation). In this book, internationally recognized experts describe the techniques in use in their laboratories for isolating and manipulating cellcultures, and their central importance in plant biotechnology.
Richard A. Dixon and Robert A. Gonzales are both at The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Editorial Reviews

`Research students could use this book as a reference to develop their own protocols by using guidelines presented. UPlant Cell Culture provides a better understanding of the increasingly important role of newer methologies in plant biotechnology. I recommend this book to anyone with aninterest in cell culture.'Anupam Gaonkar, Florida Atlantic University, Economic Botany, Vol. 50, 1996
